SUBSTATION OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE TECHNIQUES

Ref No: 2015072

INTRODUCTION

This course covers several useful aspects regarding the principles, design aspects, practical aspects, installation, testing and commissioning of High Voltage Equipments, Substations and transformers. The vast data is presented in systematic manner along with illustrations, reference tables, specifications, ratings, product and plant description etc
This course Outlines the basic procedures and will serve as a useful reference for substation and transformer Designers, Project Managers and Operation & Maintenance Staff. It covers every practical topic from conceptual design, installation, commissioning, to operation and maintenance. Every major substation equipment including Power Transformers, SF Breakers, electrical auxiliaries & subsystems etc. have been covered.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

There is considerable interest among people who operate and maintain electrical power systems in a Wide range of topics relating to equipment maintenance and testing. This is because condition and reliability are directly related to maintenance and testing To obtain maximum life from electrical equipment, maintain its reliability, and minimize repair cost, it is necessary to serve and test it periodically to predict condition. Proper installation and preventive maintenance of substation will assure continued electrical power supply, it is very important to the consumers specially, for industrial sector where the curtail of electrical power supply is costly.
 Upon completion of this course, a participant should be able to:
 · To perform proper maintenance on substations Equipment, including transformers, circuit breakers, bus bars, metering, protective devices, batteries...etc.
· The attendance will become familiar with substation standards.
